Issue 160

I've been investigating moving from MacOS to Windows for my main development computer for some time, and this week I finally went all-in on that switch. Turns out it isn't especially difficult to do. Even my presentation slides were straightforward to convert to PowerPoint from Keynote. The fact that so much of what we do now lives online makes switching OS far easier than in the past, once I had my web browsers logged into my accounts, I had most of my workflow right there. It is certainly nice to use a computer where all the keys work on the keyboard!

At the end of this week, I'm heading to An Event Apart in Chicago and then Frontend Conf in Zurich. Come and say hello if you are attending either of these.
